The Center for Network Therapy (CNT) is a drug rehab center in NJ that provides contemporary, evidence-based, outpatient addiction treatment that delivers far better outcomes relative to conventional drug treatment for substance use disorders. CNT is in-network with all private health insurance plans and offers Ambulatory or Outpatient Detoxification & Withdrawal Management, Partial Care and Intensive Outpatient, or IOP. CNT has 3 locations in New Jersey: Freehold, Middlesex and West Orange.

Science has proved addiction a chronic disease, based on the lasting changes it causes in the brain, and CNT was the first program to adapt addiction treatment to fit the “disease model” by moving all levels of care, including detoxification and withdrawal management, to an outpatient setting. CNT was also the first to be licensed to provide ambulatory outpatient, or Outpatient Detoxification in New Jersey and offers withdrawal management from alcohol, anesthetics, benzodiazepines and opiates. CNT also offers detox from maintenance MAT medications such as methadone, buprenorphine, Subutex or Suboxone treatment. Most addiction treatment programs still stick to inpatient detoxification, as they view addiction as a behavioral issue and, unwittingly, perpetuate the stigma attached to the disease.

Outpatient Drug Rehab Center in NJ

A study by CNT showed that Ambulatory, or Outpatient Detoxification delivered higher sobriety rates, 90 days out, relative to outmoded inpatient detoxification. Better outcomes among both, men and women were driven by integration of the living environment into treatment, individualized medication protocols and longer length of stay. For women, effectively addressing trauma they experienced in the past further enhanced success rates.

Ambulatory Detoxification and Outpatient Withdrawal Management also reduce stigma associated with addiction, as the patient accesses treatment while remaining an active member of the community. CNT utilizes the latest, evidence-based therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, or DBT, and Motivational Interviewing, or MI in conjunction with Medication Assisted Treatment, or MAT. Psychiatrist(s) at CNT address co-occurring psychological issues.

NJ Detox Center

CNT is in-network with all major private health insurance providers. Therefore the patient benefits from the lowest possible out-of-pocket costs, such as co-pays and deductibles. Being in-network also means that CNT’s drug and alcohol treatment programs are credentialed by health insurance providers and CNT can treat withdrawal symptoms immediately, without waiting for authorization.

CNT’s Medical Director, Indra Cidambi, M.D., is recognized as America’s leading addiction treatment expert. She innovated to the Outpatient, or Ambulatory Detoxification level of care and proved it to be safe and effective. ASAM (American Society of Addiction Medicine) has recognized Dr. Cidambi for advancing treatment for addiction and New Jersey Governor, Phil Murphy, has nominated her to the Governor’s Addiction Council. Dr. Cidambi’s views are highly sought after by media outlets: NPR, New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, NJ 101.5, “O” Magazine, NJ News 12, CBS, Fox News, Thrive Global, NJTV and others.

This new facility is a symbol of hope for families and friends that a loved one’s life can, and will, be saved.
Brian Cuban, Author
Their outpatient detox model has proven effective for those seeking to end the cycle of addiction.
Brian G.
Had a very good experience at the rehab center. Very good, professional staff and caring atmosphere. The groups were very educational, insightful, and helpful to my recovery. The level of personal care for each individual at CNT sets them aside from other facilities and programs. It helped me to change my life in a positive way.
Daniel H.
CNT is my first detox/PHP treatment. My experience here has been very pleasant thus far. The environment is structured, yet relaxed. Everyone participates as they become comfortable to share their stories, as they are very personal. CNT offered free walk-in support for Thanksgiving, which can keep patients away from trigger situations.
My experience here has been wonderful. I’ve learned a lot and got to open up and figure myself out. i’ve learnt how to act in certain situations, and keep myself calm when I am super stressed out. I like it here at the cnter, everyone is welcoming, everyone is really helpful and there for you whenever you’re upset, mad or just need someone to talk to.
